Otago Support Group


About our Support Group

Otago Crohns Colitis Support Group has been established since 1989 to offer support and information relating to Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

We aim to give support and understanding not only for patients but family, relatives and support people who suffer with IBD in the community and to raise awareness where possible.

Please make contact with your Otago Support Group.
